" I think BIP Asia Forum is very important to show that countries pay more attention to intellectual property protection. BIP Asia Forum is a kind of showcase that Hong Kong and the Chinese mainland or even Asia as a whole is transforming from a manufacturing centre to innovation centre."
Mr Yi Xiaozhun, Former Deputy Director-General, World Trade Organization
"BIP Asia Forum has become a major fixture on the global intellectual property calendar, reflecting the growing importance of intellectual property in Asia. Hong Kong of course is a highly significant player, and it’s perfectly placed to play the role of one of the global hubs for IP with its leading support services, and the leading and pioneering role with respect to the trading of intangibles and IP."
Mr Francis Gurry, Former Director General, World Intellectual Property Organization
"As an international city, Hong Kong has inherent advantages in trading, commerce, and shipping, and the potential to become Asia’s intellectual property trading platform. It is believed that Hong Kong will play an important role in the development of our country’s intellectual property in the future."
Dr Shen Changyu, Commissioner, State Intellectual Property Office of the People’s Republic of China
"BIP Asia provides an important platform for intellectual property to transcend its typical sphere of action and go beyond that, as a backbone of any business of today, and thus grasping that big corporations as well as SMEs will rely on their intangible assets to be successful."
Mr Miguel Ángel Margáin, Former Chair, Intellectual Property Rights Experts Group, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation
"BIP Asia Forum is one of the very few best forums I have ever seen. If you ask me to grade from 1 to 10, 10 the highest, I have no hesitation to give a 10."
